The recipe Minestrone Soup Kitchen Mode

  • 1

    Set a large heavy pan over medium heat with a tablespoon of oil. Add the onion, celery, carrots, and ½ teaspoon salt. Cook, stirring often, for 5-8 minutes, or until tender.

  • 2

    Tip in the garlic, Italian seasoning, and tomato paste. Cook and stir for 1 minute.

  • 3

    Stir in the tinned tomatoes, cannellini beans, kidney beans, stock, and 1 teaspoon salt. Raise the heat to bring up to a boil then lower the heat and simmer for 5 minutes.

  • 4

    Taste and season the broth, it should be slightly salty as it will flavour the macaroni. Tip in the macaroni and cook for 5 minutes, giving it a good stir every so often to ensure the macaroni doesn’t stick to the bottom. The macaroni should be not quite al dente as they will continue to cook in the hot soup.

  • 5

    Stir through the spinach, and cook until wilted.
